In Reply to: here is my letter to GLAAD posted by Deros on August 06, 2001 at 13:13:23:
Can't we just put this behind us and look forward to the movie? nice letter though.
-Push the button Frank-
: Dear GLAAD,
: I would like to thank you for your defense of Gays and Lesbians
: throughout the world.
: That said, I need to take exception with your letter to Kevin Smith
: regarding the Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back movie set to come out
: later this month. Anyone familiar with his films would know that the
: criticisms set forth by you in your letter are preposterous. I think you
: are doing a disservice to your members by averring such criticism.
: Let them see the movie and decide for themselves. Why, in an age
: when you are trying to foster brotherhood, you must find a way to
: divide is beyond me. If this makes me a homophobe, then I guess
: your standards are not where they should be. Maybe if kevin was gay
: that would make things all right in your eyes. I hardly think that Ellen
: DeGeneres would have received this treatment if she was to poke fun
: at lesbianism.
: Kevin is a controversial producer only because people cannot
: accept the humor in his films. I am interested in what it feels like to
: get into bed on this issues with true homophobes why decry the fact
: that he portrays gays and lesbians as equals. Interesting.
: My last point is that in your effort to criticize Kevin's work, you have
: created the hype necessary for Kevin to have a great opening
: weekend, and for that I must thank you.
